Gardeners' Notes:

Positive coriaceous On Apr 19, 2014, coriaceous from ROSLINDALE, MA wrote:

One of my absolute favorite roses for its extraordinary performance. A blooming machine with great vigor and disease resistance. It begins blooming a couple of weeks after most roses in June, but then blooms more or less continuously. Very floriferous.

Flower color is a strong clear coral (orangey pink), beautiful by itself but clashing with many other roses, especially in traditional colors (cool pinks, crimson, fuchsia, and purples). Flowers open quickly and are not long-lasting as cut flowers, nor is their shape elegant, but this rose always has more buds coming on.

Remarkable black spot resistance here, where the climate especially favors black spot. I don't spray, and still it has clean foliage all year. Foliage is glossy and handsome.

No fragrance that I can detect.
